Also appeared in Sgt. Fury #10. The Leathernecks were commanded by U.S. Navy submarine Captain Simon Savage, who modeled his squad after his one-time associate Nick Fury's Howling Commandos. Savage had appeared in several of the Howling Commando issues as the commander of the USS Sea Wolf, a submarine taking them on missions. Why an experienced submarine commander with an equivalent Army/Marine rank of Colonel was employed to lead a small squad (usually led by a Corporal) on land operations was never explained.
